Hi and thanks to all in the list.

I did a little digging and found it indeed was BroadCom as guessed.

Unfortunately I had to deliver the HP Pavilion, which indeed is a dv6111eu
model, to the user. They couldn't wait any longer. And will use it wired so
far.
I will, however, have to get back to this issue again when they get their
wireless up. I'll get the machine back and they 'll want it to go wireless.

So I'll get back in a week or two...
